a very slim minority of people think it would be a good thing to gefr on the fiscal cliff. there are hundreds of billions of dollars of economic activity from early tax refunds that you might not get in the economy in the early part of the first quarter, because people won't get the early refunds because it's a mess there what are you hearing about how close we are, how far away from a deal we are right now? >> certainly the negotiations that have happened through the night continue to the morning. before i came on with you, i conversed with an aide to senator mcconnell. we won't know anything until senate republicans get to talk. we are still hours away from that, washington woke up this morning with no deal. we're only 17 hours away and like a bunch of kids in college, kraming for their exams, we have a situation where this all nighter is going to come to an enat midnight here, one way or another and we're waiting to see if the closers, biden and mcconnell, can bring something to the floor that could pass sometime today. >> cr >> kraming for the exam, and this exam has questions that are impossible to answer and they wrote the exam in the first place. john avalon described it like this. a time bo

, because nobody wants to go over this fiscal cliff. it will damage our economy. it will hurt every taxpayer, the largest tax increase in history. it will affect everybody, and anyone who is watching who thinks, oh this isn't going to impact me, you will fin out d o will, and we know the problem is a lot of spending. not that we're not taxing people more, we're just spending too much. we hope that the president understands that as for as republicans are concerned, we're willing to negotiate and have a civil conversation, but also he's got to bring in some spending cuts and tax reform, because americans want tax reform and we don't want to hurt the economy, and, look there, are not enough millionaires in the united states to tax them all to be able to spend our way out of this problem. so let's -- let's give up a little bit -- each side can concede a little. and i think we can fin middle ground. i'm optimistic. >> we had your colleague nan hayworth last hour. she was expecting work to be done in the senate. the house did its best, boehner did his best, now it's up to the senate to co
